About the AQR Asset Management Institute


The AQR Asset Management Institute was launched in January 2015 with a mission to become the world leader for asset management-related research, study and recruitment and a centre for thought leadership.

The Institute harnesses the School’s dynamic combination of academic excellence, global perspective and London experience with London being a major hub for the asset management industry. The Institute is interdisciplinary in its approach to research and as well as finance, economics and accounting, encompasses strategy, organisation and management.

London Business School is proud to partner in this endeavour with AQR Capital Management, a pioneer in research-driven investment management.
